I like the 57 but that rear side window on the sleeper cab looks odd ? But I like the 65 a little more. I say build em both LOL

The 65 looks like a non-sleeper that someone put a sleeper from the 70/80 behind.

Yeah...and it looks outta place. It doesn't match the curves of the cab at all.

im thinking whole frame side is newer and cab was fabbed onto it. Wheels give it away.



my vote would go for the Red '57 but ill watch either one, I like the detail and styrene work you do on these scale tractors.
